Who We Are

Roughrider Philanthropic Association

Statement of Purpose

The Roughriders Philanthropic Association (RPA) is dedicated to providing excellence in academics, the arts and athletics for students and members of our community.  Through private gift support, the RPA seeks to provide resources to develop the character, independence and leadership of each student and to provide a comprehensive and collaborative learning community that prepares students to meet the global challenges of our future.  We do this through thoughtful endeavors to interest a broad range of donors.  Their gifts of cash, securities, real estate, art and other assets of value and planned gifts through bequests, trusts and gift annuities ensure quality programs of distinction for the students and the citizens of the community.

The Roughriders Philanthropic Association is a dedicated fund of the St. Marys Community Foundation, a 509 (A) not-for-profit organization as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service.

Gifts are payable to the Roughriders Philanthropic Fund (RPA Fund) of the St. Marys Community Foundation.
